Beloved Australian supergroup Seeker Lover Keeper – Sarah Blasko, Sally Seltmann and Holly Throsby– today reveal they’ll release their highly anticipated second full-length album, Wild Seeds, on Friday 9 August via Liberation Records.
To celebrate the release of their new album, Seeker Lover Keeperwill hit the road with their live band for an extensive national tour, including a show at The Gov on Saturday 28 September.
Accompanying news of the album comes the release of the title track and second single ‘Wild Seeds’. The song is an exhilarating departure from the band’s indie-folk roots, here Blasko, Seltmann and Throsby embrace drama and pathos with an uninhibited performance of soaring vocals and three-part harmonies inspired by the joy and turmoil of youth.
“Wild Seeds is our second album as Seeker Lover Keeper. This time around we decided to co-write all of the songs together, throwing ideas back and fourth in Holly’s small studio, and sitting side by side at the piano in Sarah’s cosy lounge room. Sonically, we went for simplicity. Melodically, we favoured call-and-answer backing vocals that weave through melodies, carrying lyrics about the need for solitude, the wildness of youth, friendship, being true to yourself, and embracing the present moment.”
Wild Seeds was self-produced by the group, with mixer Collin Dupuis (Lana Del Rey, Angel Olsen, St. Vincent) capturing the essence of the album – a woman, once wild, reflecting on her former tumults with a sense of grace and solace. It’s a fitting title for such an assured record, an album that emboldens Seeker Lover Keeper’s sound with lucidity and strength.
